Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I recently moved into a new townhouse and found my HP RVM1325WW mocrowave had the left bulb burnt out. I replaced it and within a few days it burnt out again. After reading the comments, I am really curious as to why there would be a need to disconnect power to the unit when changing bulbs. When the light switch is off, the circuit is not connected correct? Just wondering...sounds like a push to sell parts or am I mistaken?

Thanks for the follow-up. It makes sense that you'd have such a problem with an incandescent bulb. It could very well be a quality issue with the bulbs. I think you should try a different bulb. It's still puzzling that it's happening on one side and not the other, but other than the shock of shutting the door, it's hard ot say what could be doing it. I would assume that the bulbs are wired in parallel, so it would seem like more of a physical than an elctrical issue. If you happen to have the old one and the receipt, it wouldn't hurt to return the bad one and call it to their attention. It may not help but I point out things like that to retailers from time to time. Some Chinese junk is worse than others! *grin* Seriously, some of the Chinese products out there are barely adequate to the task. They cut materials cost to the bone... and it shows. It's a shame. Not only have they driven much our manufacturing out of business, they quality is often the pits. You save money on the original purchase, but not if you have to buy it over and over! *grin* off my soap box now... Let us know what you find. Hope this helps.
